About the Book

Agenda and Ideologies: Thoughts on Congress, Communism, Fascism & Others encapsulates Indian society from the days when even a telephone without a dial was a luxury to the Internet revolution and modern communication. From the 1955 flirtation with socialism that stymied India’s economic growth, to its jettisoning in 1991, ushering in liberalism, Prafull Goradia has been a witness to it all. The journey from Nehruvian politics to Modism—the reframing of West Asian relations by rapprochement with UAE and Israel, the Ayodhya saga of Babri Masjid and Ram Mandir, the rise and fall of Marxism and Fascism in the world, a new dawn for women in the armed forces and the deductive logic of Abrahamic faiths versus the inductive logic of Hinduism—Goradia’s range of discourse leaves the reader spellbound. The book is a bird’s eye view from someone who has grown up in the dawn of Independence and provides incisive insight into the last seven decades of free India.
